We stopped in here after a long day of driving. It was delightful to have such snappy service and fresh food. We thought everything was great if a bit on the bland side. Afterward we realized they never asked us how spicy we wanted our food. That would've helped I think, but all in all good food and service and... More

When I want good Thai food at a reasonable price, I go to my old standby, Tip Thai on Staples Mill Road. I'm never disappointed with their red curry with chicken and they even top it with kafir lime leaves. (I'm not sure if I spelled kafir correctly, but it's used in Thailand to flavor foods and it's delicious.) The... More

Our first time eating Thai. And it exceeded our expectations. Our food was fresh, hot and delicious. We definitely will return for the laid back atmosphere and clean environment.

Went recently for lunch with a group of colleagues. All of our meals were very good; fresh ingredients with just the right amount of spice and heat. The portions were appropriate for lunch. The lunch specials that include a spring roll and soup are a good value. Our service was prompt and courteous. We will go back again when we're... More

I was not a fan of their pad Thai and I asked to switch my meal after one bite. I was told by the waitress that I couldn't. When I went to pay for my spring roll and soup I was told it was expensive to throw food away and that I knew what I wanted when I came. This... More

Twice I have had the Massamun Curry with chicken - it has wonderful onions, peanuts and carrots and is not to spicy hot (which I request). Very flavorful. I would slurp the curry straight from the bowl and not bother with the rice..if I wasn't in public. My husband was not as impressed with his pork. He complained the vegetables... More

We drove past it for years and then stopped in after going to the computer store in the same shopping center. Now, we regularly eat there. Our favorites are the pad Thai, lemongrass soup, calamari, steak salad, four seasons chicken, sattai, and basil chicken. It is the best Thai food we have found in Richmond

This restaurant served us fresh and tasty food. Would have liked a few more choices like beef satay instead of just chicken but we did have chicken dishes and they were white meat, tender and fresh. We would go again.

We had the papaya salad, a seafood curry stir fried chef's specialty, and a vegetable tofu stir fried chefs specialty. All three were simply wonderful. Equally good were my husband's banana fried ice cream and my sticky rice with fresh mango desserts. The food here is authentic and expertly prepared, and very reasonably priced. In Seattle there'd be lines out... More

I just checked for a good restaurant around my hotel, the reviews were pretty decent for this place. I went there with my niece who is rather picky with her food. The staff was very accommodating with menu changes to cater her needs. The food we ordered was delicious, it was hot and well seasoned. A good Thai place for... More
